Note Holders and To Do Lists

Another week has passed and the weather is getting colder, I woke up this morning to lovely blue skies and bright sunshine but my, it was chilly. I'm not complaining though, it is October after all. 

I had a table at a local charity fair on Saturday and although there wasn't as many people there as we had hoped, we done quite well. Most of my 'takings' were for commissioned pieces or personalised items so it seems like I'm going to have another busy week catching up on orders. 
Lots of business cards were given out so future orders may hopefully follow.

I did sell a few of my note holders.
These two were bought by the same person for Christmas 'Stocking fillers' for her friends.

 Another thing that done well on the day were my Chalkboards, you can check them out by following the link.

As part of the Wear it Pink campaign I decided that for the month of October, every time I showed something pink on my blog I would 'pop some pennies in the pot' at my local Cancer Research Shop
So I think this Plaque counts for a few pennies.

How about these, they are pink aren't they??

Don't forget, it is for charity.

Maybe followed by some of these.................for charity

Ok, so now I need to use this.................

instead of the 'real' thing.

I'm off to make myself a cup of coffee, with 2 calories worth of sugar then I'm off to pop my link onto the linky thing on Wendy's blog.
Don't forget to mosey on over to 1st Unique Gifts and have a look at what some other crafty peeps are up to.

Take care to one and all

  16. I can def. vouch for the chalkboards, my G/kids love them. I originally hadthem for Christmas but, of course, they can chalk the days down to any exciting forthcoming activity. A big hit with them.
    I am not talking about all that pink fatening gunge - supposed to be on a diet.
